Sanctions: China halts oil exports to N/Korea

Sanctions: China halts oil exports to N/Korea”

China exported no oil, gasoline, jet fuel and diesel to North Korea in November and imported no iron ore, coal or lead from the country, Reuters reported citing data released by the General Administration of Customs on Tuesday.

South Korea has been trying to improve ties with China after suffering economic hardships stemming from Beijing's displeasure concerning this year's deployment of an American Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) anti-missile battery in the South.

"As a principle, China has consistently fully, correctly, conscientiously and strictly enforced relevant U.N. Security Council resolutions on North Korea", the spokeswoman said at a press briefing.

On November 7, for instance, a North Korean vessel was allowed to dock at a Chinese port that handles cargo like coal, according to the NK Pro ship tracker. While ship location data does not include specifics about vessel cargos, satellite imagery indicates the northeastern Chinese port handles various commodities which appear on the UN's blacklist.

"The commodity trade increase in November may be showing China's increased commodity trade with North Korea for humanitarian purposes", he told NK News, suggesting that the exchange between the two countries may not include blacklisted goods.

China is North Korea's top fuel provider, and the cutoff coincides with new sanctions unanimously passed by the U.N. Security Council last week to punish Kim for missile tests and threats of an attack against the United States.

Following the adoption of the UNSC resolution on North Korea, China called on all the parties concerned to show restraint and undertake joint efforts in order to de-escalate tensions on the peninsula.

After that, China's commodity trade with North Korea steadily decreased until October, dropping to $412 million.

The spokesman stressed the importance of China's implementation of UNSC sanctions.

North Korea also sources some of its oil from Russian Federation.

China also imported no iron ore, coal or lead from North Korea in November, the second full month of the latest trade sanctions imposed by United Nations. New U.N. sanctions enacted last week capped oil shipments to the North for any trade partner at 500,000 barrels in a single year.
